A Lismore woman could find herself behind bars for up to two years after being charged with attempting to smuggle drugs and tobacco into Grafton jail.
Christine Weston appeared in Lismore Local Court on Monday and was represented by solicitor Ms Millard.
The 39-year-old is charged with possessing a prohibited drug, possessing a prescribed restricted substance, attempting to introduce a small quantity of a prohibited drug into a detention centre and attempting to bring an object into a place of detention without lawful authority.
On June 4, Ms Weston went to visit a friend in Grafton jail between 1.20 pm and 1.45 pm and the contraband was allegedly found.
Ms Weston has pleaded guilty to trying to get cannabis, tobacco and buprenorphine (opioid addiction treatment) into the jail and possessing the two drugs.
At her last court appearance Magistrate David Heilpern requested a full pre-sentence report be completed on Ms Weston by Community Corrections.
A pre-sentence report in prepared following an interview where questions about family history, living circumstances, employment history, relationship history, criminal history and health/mental health issues are asked.
The report is added to police information and may also include recommended sentences available based on the offences for the court to consider.
Treatment options for addiction or mental health issues can also be recommended to the court.
The maximum penalty for attempting to bring a prohibited drug into a detention centre in NSW is two years jail.
On Monday, Magistrate R Denes confirmed Ms Weston’s pleas and adjourned her matter until August 21.
